    Default Fly Fishing in Norway

    Hi,
    This year I want to go fishing rivers of Norway, espcially for grayling !
    Here in France, the most well known river for grayling is Glomma.
    Many french go fishing this river each year and I have informations for this destination ...
    I need your help to get informations on other rivers ...
    The best was if you are or if you know a norvegian flyfisherman who wants to go fishing with us this will be great !
    Or if you know a club, or a forum where I can meet and talk with norvegian ...
    Thanks for your help !

    Hi glabitude,

    Couple of guys on here know a thing or 2 about Norway; 'wiggy' and 'doc salmo'. Wiggy lives and guides in the south of Norway and Doc has fished there before.
    I considered a fishing holiday there 2 or 3 years ago and contacted a company 'altafishing' or something similar; a guy called Nicklas and they do some interesting packages. I think I changed my mind when I saw the midges all over someone's face, hands, everywhere!

    Good luck and keep us in touch if you decide to go.

    Regards

    About Rugby, be sure that these is not my fault !
    In France we say " England never loose but sometimes they don't win !"

    Glomma is definitely a wonderful river for grayling fishing. a few years ago I spent a week at Kvennan camping near Tynset. You just wake up, get your rod, step into the river and start catching 40cm+ grayling (ok, that is exaggerating it, but only a little bit). another good location to start is Koppang camping. on both locations you can get a local guide or get in touch with the river keeper to accompany you for a day of part of a day. And you will find that you can meet up with plenty other firshermen who can give you tips.

    Make use to bring loads of sedge patterns and f-flies.

    I can recommend Norwegian Lapland. You can go with or without guide. A good guide is Niklas from altafishing.com | Home

    You will catch a lot of grayling. And big ones! In the summer of 2017, I had 90% of my grayling above 45 cm. And also very fat. I caught them on dry flies and streamers.

    However, take precautions against the mosquitoes! Or they will eat you alive. I remember that I woke up in the morning because of "the sound of raindrops on my tent". Well, it weren't raindrops... But thousands of mosquitoes trying to get inside

    Here's a little video that I made about this fishing trip.

    So, I'm back !

    This was a good fishing trip !

    As I had imagined : big graylings in the Glomma Rivers ... a lot of graylings in Drenghen Lake ... endless days without real night ...
    But we were in a period of unusual heat and temperature ... so rivers were very low and a lot of flyfishermen finally went to Kvennan Zone, instead of fishing tributeries ... A lot of french especially, so going so far to meet french people that's hopeless !

    A benefit of this crazy conditions ... no mosquito !!!

    A guy there told us that the project of a big dam across the Glomma River near Tolga is validated so what will become this place in the future .... ?


    Thank you all for informations ...
